Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-002
Budget: 09/16/13 - 09/15/15

The proposed Phase II SBIR will address several 3-D flowfield features using a combination of steady-state and time-dependent modeling. Angle-of-Attack and multiple nozzle interactions at high altitude will be part of the study. The 3-D modeling is based on Metacomp Technologies CFD codes. The proposed effort will also develop methodologies to i...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT15
Budget: 04/15/13 - 01/15/14

ABSTRACT: The proposed work aims to build a physics-based rapid turnaround simulation capability for resolving combustion dynamics in liquid rocket engines operating at trans-critical and supercritical flow regimes. The methodology will explore both Reduced-Order Methods and Reduced-Basis Methods as potential candidates for efficient unsteady f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-028
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

Metacomp proposes the development of a new class of efficient methods to incorporate the 3D and transient effects of vernier deployment into a base plume flow field. The methods are based on a hierarchical approach. Members of the hierarchy will be evaluated to establish their efficiency versus fidelity in the corresponding signature predictions.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-002
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

Metacomp Technologies, Inc. proposes a new 3D plume simulation tool to add another level of sophistication to MDA's IR scene generation capabilities. The new tool will provided an automated capability to obtain 3D solutions for relevant missile plume flow fields including angle-of-attack effects, verniers (with and without) gimballing, paddles,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-023
Budget: 06/25/11 - 01/31/12

The goal of the activity is to increase simulation fidelity in predicting the fluid dynamics and plasma environment in the vicinity of reentry vehicle configurations. We begin with our current implementation of thermal equilibrium and non-equilibrium chemistry capability that includes the effects of finite rate chemistry with dissociation and ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-112
Budget: 05/06/11 - 08/06/13

ABSTRACT: When using the current state-of-the-art in spatial discretization, numerical flux functions and temporal integration techniques, the amount of effort required for simulations in general geometries is prohibitively large for most unsteady simulations in multi-element rocket engines. In addition, current numerical techniques, while effec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-034
Budget: 10/20/10 - 10/19/12

Metacomp Technologies has demonstrated, in Phase I, improvements to continuum approaches that can achieve higher fidelity in modeling the near-transitional flow regime. In Phase II, the new approach will be enhanced further, and additional possibilities explored. Improvements to the simulation processes are also being planned to ensure reliabl...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT38
Budget: 06/30/10 - 03/30/11

The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Shear layer instabilities and intermittent growth rates of the mixing layer cause fluctuations in the b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-104
Budget: 06/30/10 - 03/28/11

Metacomp Technologies proposes to use a near-body fine mesh DNS sub-domain, coupled to a hybrid URANS/LES-type grid in the rest of the flowfield. Statistically-steady solutions will first be computed over a domain large enough to tolerate the imposition of ambient or freestream conditions at infinity. These solutions can be achieved rapidly, us...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-T009
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Positive feedback between the acoustic waves and unsteady combustion could lead to the destruction of a...
